When it rains, it pours for Letran.

Knights team manager Manny Pacquiao promised to give Letran players a P100,000 cash incentive each shortly after they ended their 10-year title drought in the NCAA with an 85-82 Game 3 overtime victory over San Beda on Thursday.

The Knights’ NCAA Season 91 title conquest, the school’s 17th overall, stopped San Beda’s five-year stronghold of the NCAA throne.

Pacquiao, who was present in both of Letran’s wins in the NCAA Finals, was named the team manager just before the season started.
